Unused keys are really lost opportunities for everyone. For developers, one of the main reasons to participate in a bundle is to create exposure, to put the game in the hands of gamers who might not otherwise find the game or buy it at retail. The hope is that some, perchance many, will actually play the game, like it, post reviews, tell friends, generally spread the word, which ultimately provides a promotional boost for the game and the developer, something particularly important for indies.
And, no doubt, not every game appeals to every gamer, though conversely, most every game will have an appeal to some gamers. Keys that were included in a bundle that are left idle represent the opportunity for joy unrealized by some gamer.
I’m a big fan of Hemingway. I enjoy his spare but keenly observant writing style. It is evocative and very moving to me. And his themes and stories are big, like the man himself. I will always remember the first page of For Whom the Bell Tolls, the prologue, a poem by John Donne from which the title derives:
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”
